I booked Volcano Lodge and Springs through a Groupon. From start to finish, they proved to be an excellent company, and if I am ever in Fortuna again, I will definitely stay there. My review starts before I even arrived. I booked excursions and transportation through them (they are about 3 hours from San Jose Airport) and Maria was very... More

When we first arrived we were unsure of this place. By the end of our stay we were glad we came here. Good: - The view of the volcano while you're sitting in the hot spring is great! - The food was excellent. - The rooms are a good size and clean. - I believe every room has a view... More

We stayed here last July for a couple of days. It was amazing. The staff were very friendly and knowledgeable. They helped us with our Spanish but were also able to speak English when we needed it. The room was great, the extra time they take to make the towel art on the beds each day was a nice touch.... More

In the midst of stunning scenery and magnificent garden with a trail where to spot any number of excotic fauna and flora - Volcano Lodge & springs is worth the buck. Yes, it needs renovation. We had a very damp room, but what to expect in that weather? The restuarant and bar might benefit from a renewal too, but the... More

Be sure to ask for a Volcano view. The rooms are in clusters of 4 ( in a straight line). The property is on approx 10... More

We definitely had positive and less positive feelings about this hotel. We stayed for several days. First, the pros: The service was consistently very good, and if your Spanish is rusty, most everyone speaks a good amount of English. The front desk team was very helpful. The food is good- not exceptional, but nice enough. There was no variation in... More

We also were there with our Groupon package deal. I think it's important to remember what a tremendous price we got for 9 days in Costa Rica. I love these kind of hotels that have character and are not like every other hotel. It was all one level with a patio overlooking the volcano. We parked our car at our... More

Just a short drive from most of the attractions surrounding the Volcano Arenal is the Volcano Lodge and Springs. Our room was clean and modestly furnished. The Central Lodge has a bar, a reception area and a billiard/pool table near the bar. It is all open air but the temperature is comfortable at the foot of the Volcano, one might... More

We stayed at the Volcano Lodge for 3 nights in March and really enjoyed our time there. The staff is very friendly and the accommodations are modest but lovely and clean. This Lodge made a perfect "base camp" for all the excursions we did while in La Fortuna. The pool area was never busy and actually quite quiet. We loved... More

Before getting into this review, I would like to preface it by mentioning it that it was the result of a Groupon "Trifecta" trip to Costa Rica. Therefore you will need to know that my journey does not end here but also at two other, completely different locations at this Central America location. The organizer of the Groupon deal was...
